the DAMN ATI DRIVER Installation

ok guyz ..
i know that this has been mailed alot of times but i face a problem everynow and then .. right now i got meself a Radeon 9200SE and i downloaded the latest drivers for it and here the thing ..

on the terminal (without X started) i start the installer

sudo sh

the installer starts and i go default settings ... it installs all the files and then in the end before jumpin back to the terminal it gives an error .

now the log of that is in /usr/share/fglrx/fglrx-install.log

when i got there and check it , it says this

[Message] Kernel Module: Trying to install a precompiled kernel module
[Message] Kernel Module: Precompiled Kernel Module Mismatch
[Error] Kernel Module: No kernel module build enviourment

from what i understand is that there are some kernel files that it dosent have that the kernel requires (iam a complete Newbiew) thats all i can understand.

the driver i dwlded is like 30MB and i think that everything should be in it since it is the latest version.

i tried to do alot of things but nothing works ... when i run the fglrxconfig file i does everything as i go default on everything but still it dosent start the X ..

i want complete 3d support and a good driver installation so that i can try games on my Ubuntu box... pleas help !!
